Canon M80 photo drive
The new M80 by Canon marks an increasing attempt to push photo drives beyond professionals. It is nevertheless suited to pro work, as it can hold up to 80GB of content, and is designed with the familiar interface (hardware and software) of Canon's EOS series of DSLR cameras. Slots are present for CF, SD and SDHC memory cards. The prosumer side becomes noticeable mainly in the 640x480, 3.7-inch LCD, as well as the ability to handle other media: MP3 music and MPEG-2/4 videos can be played. The M80 should launch in Japan by the end of July.
